Beautiful Weekending

The return of Monday after last week's long weekend, please pass the coffee!


On Friday, we had our family room finally painted so I spent the evening hanging back up the curtains, frames, and putting the entertainment unit and bookcase back together with movies and knick knacks. When we had the house built a few years ago, the whole house was painted in a beige that had yellow undertones. So slowly, we've been re-painting the rooms to give the house more personality and color. For the family room we went with an avocado green accent wall at the far end behind the entertainment unit and "greige" walls on either side leading into the kitchen nook.

Saturday was filled with college football and pool time before heading down to the riverwalk for some food and to meet up with friends.



Sunday was our maternity photo shoot at the park. Seriously where has the time gone? Here's a sneak peek, I can't wait to see the rest!


We also started discussing 2017 travel plans *my favorite*! On the agenda is a trip to San Fran and wine country and possibly Ireland. And I may throw in a cruise with my mom to thank her for all her help with baby girl when she arrives. We also casually discussed Iceland, which flights are surprisingly affordable to. I can see the northern lights and hot springs already! Isn't travel planning just as exciting as the trip itself? So much to look forward to!

  3. The photo I saw of you guys from the shoot over the weekend was gorgeous! Can't wait to see more!
    I hate the neutral paint that looks semi yellow! We had that too and it was the bane of our existence when we moved in! Luckily it's gone in just about every room now I think. Can't wait to see what yours looks like!

  15. Eeee I cant wait to see your maternity pictures! How exciting! We are hopefully going to have some painting going on over here next weekend in the nursery. All the walls in our house are the same color except the two guest rooms. I would like to paint them all but we are planning on moving in the next year or two so why bother now. Your travel plans sounds so exciting! Seeing the Norther Lights would be so darn cool!

  23. The flights to Iceland are really affordable, it's the hotels that are outrageous. My parents have been trying to get over there for months now but the hotel costs more than their airfare! I can't wait to see more of your maternity pics, so pretty!! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
